Verified profile

Music has been part of my life for as long as I can remember, all the way back to Cagliari, Italy, where I was born and raised. During these formative years, alongside studying classical guitar, private tuition in jazz guitar particularly fuelled my passion for modern styles, with the music of Jimi Hendrix, Santana, Led Zeppelin and Pat Metheny providing me with a window to the fascinating world of rock, jazz and blues. Nowadays, as a freelance session guitarist and guitar tutor, I have a wealth of experience in live music, studio recording, session playing and songwriting and enjoy the versatility and creativity of working across a wide range of musical genres, from pop and country to acoustic folk and rock. I have worked with some superb musicians and have performed for a whole host of events and venues, such as Cargo, Tobacco Dock and The Water Rats. I have a regular list of musicians I work with – a combination of session work and live performances – and I also offer one-to-one guitar tuition. Gibson Les Paul Standard, Charvel and Taylor are my go-to gear to give me the versatility to cater to a broad range of styles and genres as needed.

The evening was perfect: great music, fab atmosphere and the dropouts were just great. Our customers really liked them and I can't wait to have them back in a few months. Kudos to them!

Our company event went seamlessly: employees had a great time at the rhythm and sound of the dropouts, going from 1960s classics to 1980s rock and straight into 1990s britpop and more. Would definitely recommend: they got everyone to sing along and everyone just chilled the whole night. Will book again as soon as we can. Jay
